The extent of my sewing continues to be quilting bee blocks. I'm happy to say as of now, I'm sewing for the current month. For now, I'm caught up. I'm finding this single block sewing to be the perfect food for my creative hunger. Snack food, if you will. I've been able to try new techniques in small increments without a large commitment of time or resources. Tracy asked for a block with texture. Texture and pops of color on gray.
For texture I tried my hand at honeycomb smocking. I'm a long way from doing anything as beautiful as the photo in the tutorial, but I'm pleased with the texture the smocking adds to the block. I added a wee bit more texture and some color too with a strip of selvedge tucked inside a seam, leaving the raw edge exposed.
I'm going to be moving. Moving my sewing room, that is. More on that later... Have a wonderful Monday, friends!
